2000 Jeep Cherokee 4.0L. Turn ingition to on, all electric comes on normally. Turn ignition to start, and all electric shuts off. Immediately turn ignition off, then on, no electric. After a few minutes with the ignition off, turn ingition on and the electric returns. Sometimes hear the starter solenoid click before electric shuts down, other times, not. Have replaced the starter (same w/ old and new starter), checked the starter and ingition fuses, battery is OK (behavior is the same while jumping) voltage on battery and dash are >12V. Haven't checked the starter relay, don't know how. Checked for obvious shorts, all seems OK.
Anything else a DIYer can check before sending it to the mechanic to diagnose apparent electric problem?
have the same problem?
